Jimmy Vesey scored his first goal and recorded his first point on 2017 on Tuesday against Columbus.
Vesey has 3 goals and 1 assist in the past 22 games with only 26 shots on goal and an average of 12:37 per game.
Vesey has four shots on goal, 3 against Columbus, in the past two games after playing six straight games without registering a shot on goal.
The 15:06 that Vesey played was his most ice time since 1/4 against the Flyers.
In the 8 games prior to last night Vesey was a minus 7, had 0 points, 2 shots on goal and an average of 10:59 per game.
Dave Maloney said that after Vesey scored he looked like he wants to make plays again with the puck.
Joe Micheletti said that Vesey felt good in the last game before the break and that he needs to hold onto the puck more, keep his head up and make plays.
Joe said that those are things he did earlier in the season and that he told Vesey that he looks like he doesn't want to make plays with the puck when he doesn't have his confidence.
